4 Questions to Ask Before Renting Portable Storage Containers

November 1, 2014 CommercialResidential

Have you seen those portable storage units around the neighborhood or in your office park? They’re one of the hottest trends in home moves.

They’re typically parked on lawns and in driveways or parking lots, big containers that are delivered to your home or office, that are loaded over time and, once full, moved to storage or your new location.

Is portable storage right for your move? Ask yourself these 4 questions:

  1. Do we have the time and manpower to pack ourselves?
  2. Do we need more control over where our things are? Many people like these units because they know where everything is during a move. Need tax records from 2009? Check the bin in the front right corner of the unit.
  3. Will we save money? Portable storage is popular because clients think “do-it-yourself” equals cheaper price. But that’s not always the case, especially with longer moves. Get a comparison moving estimate before you decide.
  4. Will we need short-term storage at our new destination? Portable storage can save you money if you won’t be immediately moving into your new home or office. Paying the monthly fee for the portable storage unit might be less expensive than hundreds of dollars to put your entire household or office in a public storage unit.
